The stories we hear in childhood-usually from parents and grandparents, teachers and caregivers-teach us the values, faith, culture, and traditions of those we love most. They nourish our sense of wonder and curiosity about the world. That's what this brand-new series aims to achieve, and it is our hope that children and their families will explore these wonderful tales together. Each book, filled with evocative artwork and a cast of unforgettable characters, will bring a little magic into a child's world. The first volume, "The Hungry Clothes & Other Jewish Folktales," presents a diverse selection of Ashkenazi and Sephardic fairytales, legends, parables, fables, tall tales, trickster and fool tales, and supernatural and mystical stories. They include "The Pots of Honey," which teaches the importance of both justice and forgiveness; "The Boy Who Prayed with the Alphabet," about an unlearned boy who finds a unique way to express his love for God; and "The Wise Daughter Who Solves Riddles," one of the most beloved stories in the Jewish tradition.De Conno, Gianni is the author of 'Hungry Clothes and Other Jewish Folktales', published 2008 under ISBN 9781402726514 and ISBN 1402726511.
